  • Readers of Clare's game-changing memoir . . . will be struck by the fact that a mind so recently dominated by straight-to-DVD fantasies is now capable of reflecting on them with so much gentle wisdom and acute self-awareness. And in such beautiful, witty prose

    Helen Brown, Daily Telegraph
  • A shattering journey . . . remarkable

    Sheena Joughin, Times Literary Supplement
  • I loved Heavy Light: its honesty, its questing intelligence. I loved Clare's openness to the stories of others - seeking to understand, not to judge . . . Although he has nothing but praise for the carers who helped him through, his description of our threadbare mental health services, and the inhuman pressures on those who work in them, is heart-breaking. We have to do better

    Julian Sheather, British Medical Journal
  • What a gift...having such an articulate agent, reporting back from the far edges of the mind

    Megan Agnew, Sunday Times
  • Clare is a wildly endearing narrator of his own turmoil . . . [his] is a persuasive argument not only against chemical answers to his own illness, but also against the hasty (and often permanent) way individuals are labelled with diagnostic categories

    Brian Dillon, Financial Times
